About Kim Schwing

Hello, we are Steve and Kim Schwing of San Juan Capistrano, California. We have four grown children and three precious grand-daughters. We are Southern California natives who love to travel, entertain and spend time with loved ones.

Kim Schwing purchased this house in 2006

Why Kim Schwing chose Lake Havasu City

Our family has a passion for boating, water sports and off-roading. We are sure you will agree Lake Havasu is the most beautiful place to enjoy them all. We started camping here in the 1990's, fell in love with the area and decided to purchase a family vacation home that fit our family with teenagers and frequent guests in 2006. This home has 2 separate masters and 2 large family/great rooms. The space encourages togetherness while allowing everyone their own space. It has been the perfect back drop for large get-togethers (50th Anniversary Weekend/Family Reunion) and intimate gatherings (Couple Weekends) alike. We hope you & yours will love breath-taking Lake Havasu and The Gem as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

When you cross the threshold, you know it's havin' fun time! Whether that means chilling after a tough work week or entertaining some friends-Gemini is the place.

Favorite spots: Reading a book or surfing the net in the oversized chairs in the Game Room. Playing a game of pool/chipping on the putting green while listening to some IPOD tunes or relaxing & taking in the views with a cocktail and chips & salsa in the spa. Come visit and find your favorite spot!

Amazing house with all the amenities at a great price

  • 5 of 5

To start off, Kim and Steve are the best hostesses you could ask for! They were always just a text away for any questions we had. The house is amazing and in a great location, just a short drive to London bridge. The pool was so nice to have especially on the hot summer days. We will definitely be staying here again for future Havasu trips. Thanks again for a great weekend!!!

The GEM is a true GEM

  • 5 of 5

The house was fully equipped with plenty of amenities, kitchen items, regular and pool toys were plenty. Everything worked great, including the air-conditioning which is needed this time of the year.

The kids had a great time and we had to force them to go to bed.

Thank you homeowners for your hospitality.
